Level 0: The Joy of Improv

The Joy of Improv

Level 0 is an optional class for complete beginners.  It is ideal for students who have little or no performance experience, who might be nervous about trying improv for the first time, or who are just looking to ease into the art form.  In 6 weekly sessions, students will take their first steps in improv in a relaxed, mutually supportive environment.  Through warm-ups and games, students will get comfortable being on stage, learn the fundamentals of “Yes, And,” and have some fun!

Note:  Level 0 is not a required course within our training program.  Students have the option to begin their studies with us at Level 0 or Level 1.  Level 0 does not culminate in a student showcase performance.
